I am strong because I choose daily to love myself. I deny the worlds ideals of beauty and embrace my own; declaring daily to myself, "I am beautiful." I am strong because I choose to do things my way. I don't let myself get pushed around, and I don't tolerate controlling behaviour. I am strong because I am finally free, and I have pursued this freedom for many years. I am my own, and I don't need anyone else to define me. This is why I am strong.
I am capable because I am a woman determined to succeed. I don't let obstacles stop me, or slow me down. I persist and I push on, even when I'm exhausted. I am capable because I try, and I strive daily to be better. Challenges excite and thrill me. I have a history of success in my field, and I am continuing to grow and learn. This is why I am capable.
I am enough because I am not completed by anyone other than me. I am enough because I don't depend on the words of others to define my worth. I am enough because I believe I am powerful enough, strong enough, and capable enough to do anything I want to. I am enough, because I know I'm not too much, or too little. I am enough because I am me, and that is simply all.

I went through a stage when I was 17 like most girls do at some point in their lives where I idolised other women’s bodies.⠀⠀⠀⠀Miranda Kerr was someone I really looked up to, she seemed perfect to me - she is the exact same height as I am and I became so obsessed with her that I found her exact weight somewhere on the Internet and basically starved myself until I reached it. ⠀
From the day I injured myself I imagined myself climbing.. You are standing looking up at a mountain. It is higher than any other mountain you have ever seen before. The climb up there seems impossible. You cant even see the top because of the fog. It seems impossible. You keep looking up, wishing you could just fly up there. But you can´t fly. You don´t have wings or any type of balloon. You just have a heavy backbag, but you have no idea what´s in it or why it is so heavy. You start walking....
Kenya Raymer, aka @halfietruths in the Instagram world, has shared her life with us and millions of others, and her latest journey to grace her Instagram feed that warrants hilarious updates is: being a mother.
As comical as she is, she remained candid during her difficult journey to become a mother and continues to do as she takes on motherhood. Like many other women, her journey hasn't been easy, but she's proceeded on and she has done so, and still does, with courage.
